Do dogs and cats have bellybuttons? I've never seen one.?


Answers:
They sure do! Just like you cats, dogs, horses, and giraffes are all placental mammals. Placental mammals develop inside their mother. Nutrients, oxygen, and wastes are exchanged between the developing embryo and the mother through a placenta. An umbilical cord connects the embryo to the placenta. The navel or belly button is where the umbilical cord was attatched to the young placental mammal. So even though you may not notice it unless you look very carefully, dogs and cats do, indeed, have belly buttons.
No, of course not. they do not have umbilical cords like humans.
Yes, they do. I actually saw a segment on that on Good Morning America about a month ago. Its under their fur on their bellies.
As far as I know they dont! strange though cos I wonder how they were fed in the womb! Hmm interestin question! Lol
I beleive they do, i watched my cat give birth, and the kittens had the umbilical cord, the cat chews through it. It must be attached somewhere. Good question actually.
no I don't think cats have belly buttions but dogs do
yeah but every one is a "sticky out" not an "inny" like humans, some of your answerers are clearly insane, certainly the first one. they have umbilical cords, the cat/dog chews it off straight after birth. it's not hidden under fur, it's there if you look.
Not really, they have a bump on their stomach from where the umbilical cord was attached, but they don't have "belly buttons" in the way humans have them.
yes they do
yes, they do, but they heal very quickly, our little minidoxie had just a vague area on her belly when we first brought her home from the breeder...now shes growing some fuzzy hair on her little tummy, shes such a sweet little dog, and we truly love her shar from ohio
Yeah, if you feel about just down from their ribs (wait until they are stretched out) and then feel about for it. You'll know it when you feel it.
I believe they do, I have got one lol
yes if it is a boy cat or dog it is above the penis
yes, my sister had a tabby once with an enlarged belly button.
its easier too spot when they are young,they certainly have bellybuttons.
Yes!
fusillica is wrong, of course they have belly buttons,how do you think they survive in the womb? They are just not prevalent on most animals as they are in humans, because there is not a not a knot tied in it, the mother just eats the placenta and then the cord dries up and falls off. It happens quicker than in human babies too. My puppy has a big belly button though, first tiem i ever saw a dog with a big one.
dogs and cats do have belly buttons. This is a physical remnant of life in the womb because it physically marks the spot where the umbilical cord connected the animal to its mother. In the case of animals which carry more than one fetus at a time, each fetus must have an umbilical cord in order to survive. However, these multiple umbilical cords do not usually get tangled. The main reason is that each embryo is contained in the mother’s uterus as a single unit. There are a series of membranes that surround the developing embryo and the umbilical cord, thus isolating them from neighboring structures.

hope this helps :)
YES! dogs and cats have bellybuttons just like you and I and every other living creature in today's world that was attached to their mothers by an umbilical when they (we) were born.

No because they have no umbillical cords. They are joined to the mother by 'bags' which feed the puppy/kitten when inside the mother then the mother eats the 'bag' (or afterbirth) when they are born - glad we dont have to do that
yes dogs do my dogs is about halfway down her tummy under her fur, i only spotted it after she'd had the snip so to speak when they had shaved her tummy for the op!!
Yes dogs do, I had to help my dog deliver 8 pups and they was covered in this transparent skin and a small umbilical cord also, till the mother took it away.
Go to Yahoo homepage, Select Images in the search bar, then look for feline umbilical cord - it should throw up some photos of "Leo" - a tiny kitty found abandoned when only a couple of hours old. with umbilical cord still attached!
Evidently, cats do have belly buttons, as do dogs!
Dogs do, of course. Cats, being the" spawn of Satan", may, or may not. I, for one, have never approached close enough to a cat to see. I do not think I ever will. Dogs rule! Cats belong in the barn!
YES!

My dog (indie) has a belly button - seen with my own 2 eyes!

It's not as obvious or deep like a human one...but it's there!
